    If you missed the chance to get a free ticket on line, ( though you still may have a chance) now most Denver area dive retailers have discount coupons- save 1/2 at least. The exhibitor list is growing and now includes a number of destination resorts, equipment manufactures, local dive shops, travel arrangers, the top liveaboard fleets will be represented, and DAN will be there too. It a big deal!!!! And its only 35 days away!

    The Colorado Dive Show was a good one this past weekend. I don't know whether it was moving it to the downtown venue or that word had gotten out from last year's show, or both, but it was great to have so many people attending and interested. Congratulations to U.S. Dive shows for putting on a good show this year.

    I only talked to one attendee who complained about the show being downtown rather than near the airport. He said the "hill people" didn't like going to town". I think the numbers speak for themselves. It was a damn good show downtown.

    We have been going to the Colorado Dive Show since Brad started it 2 years ago. We were very happy to see a Dive Show in Denver again. However it was not as good as the one the Colorado Dive Shops discontinued about a decade ago. The 2010 show was at a hotel at the airport. It was OK and we got to see a lot of our old friends. Last year it was at the Convention Center. The location was very inconvenient for us. We hate going into Denver. There were fewer, not more exhibitors than the first year and most of them were the same ones as the year before. We just checked the exhibitor list, and there are few exhibitors and there do not appear to be any new ones this year.

    Also, the location on the free tickets we got was the Plaza at the Mart. It appears that it was changed to Downtown Denver again. Because of the new location, low number of exhibitors, and no new exhibitors, we are unlikely to go this year. We are really disappointed.
